Introducing the NEW Thickening Spray by MONAT
Thick, luscious, healthy-looking hair never goes out of style. Besides being one of the most evident signs of youth, many women admit that having voluminous hair makes them feel sexier and more feminine. However, as we get older, our hair ages too and some women start noticing their hair is getting thinner, scarcer or more brittle. This is generally a totally natural process but it might also be due to external causes, such as stress, unbalanced nutrition and overdoing chemical or hot styling methods.
Don’t just style your hair, treat it with MONAT! MONAT’s newest addition to its permanent collection of products, , is formulated with the powerful key ingredients Capixyl™, Procataline™ and Crodasorb™ to add texture and fullness to the hair, while protecting it from sun damage, extending color and helping stimulate hair growth naturally. also offers a light, flexible hold that’s soft yet keeps hairstyles in place.
While Thickening Spray adds volume to the hair shaft, MONAT’s Reshape Root Lifter adds volume in the crown area. The two make the perfect pair! Use them together to add more height, body and bounce to your hair.
Halloween isn’t the time to play it safe. That’s because Halloween is the one night a year you can go all-out with your hairstyle without worry. Forget about looking perfect and polished. Halloween hairstyles are all about making the most of your look and costume, and with the right styling products and hair inspiration, you can transform into a mermaid or a vampire in seconds. (Okay, maybe minutes.) Try a retro, 1950s hairstyle, witch hair or go for the dark side with a vampire hairstyle. Whatever your costume, you’ll be all treats and no tricks with these cool hairstyles for Halloween.
This bridal hairstyle takes a dark turn when it’s a zombie bride. Get the undead vibe with haunting makeup and a messy side braid. If you’re a pro at braiding hair, this is a Halloween hairstyle to consider—plus, it’ll give you gorgeous wavy hair the morning after. Starting with dry hair, create a deep side braid in your hair. Then, gather your hair loosely in the back, incorporating the braid, and secure it with either pins or an elastic hair tie. Let stray pieces of hair fall loose for an undone (and undead), messy braid look. Then, finish it off with a spray of Sleek & Shine Anti-Humidity Hairspray, which ensures your hairstyle lasts through witching hour and beyond.
Vampire hairstyles are kind of open to interpretation, because vampires are all about the teeth. (Naturally.) Still, nothing gives vampire vibes quite like sleek, stick-straight hair, which can look so perfect it’s almost unnatural—making it an ideal vampire hairstyle. Set the stage for sleek hair in the shower and first wash your hair with Sleek & Shine Shampoo and Conditioner. Then, towel-dry your hair and blow dry it until it’s completely dry. Then, spray a generous amount of Flat Iron Perfector all over. Our formula with Argan oil, helps to keep hair smooth and protects hair against heat damage. Then, straighten your hair with a flat iron, making sure not to curl the ends under.
Alien Hair: Galactic Girl
For a Halloween hairstyle that’s out of this world, channel your best alien and go for a hairstyle that’s creative and wild. (After all, there’s no better moment to do so.) The trick to creating this oversized, curly faux hawk is making your curls as big as possible—which you can do with Curl Sculpt Conditioning Cream Gel, which offers both hair hold and hydration. Work it through damp hair. Then, divide hair into five sections, three down the middle and two on the side. Apply a small amount of the hair cream gel to one side section, twist it and pin it down. Repeat on the other side. Release the three middle sections of hair and use your hands to twist and fluff it. Once the big night is over, give styled hair extra TLC with a nourishing shampoo and conditioner. Moisturize your hair as you wash with Curl Nourish Shampoo and Conditioner. Then, for extra hair hydration, work a generous amount of Curl Nourish Butter Hair Cream, a leave-in anti-frizz cream, through your damp hair and let it air dry.
You’d be missing out on a good opportunity if you don’t take the mermaid waves trend and run with it. That’s the thinking behind the mermaid hairstyle look—no fins required. All you need is damp hair and Smooth Air Dry. Scrunch it into your hair and let your hair dry naturally. Use your fingers to tousle hair for extra texture and movement as needed. Who said mermaids have to be high-maintenance?
A 1950s hairstyle is so iconic that it’s all you need to take your outfit to the next level (and you get bonus points if you pair it with an equally retro swing dress). Pin up hair is one of the most flattering Halloween hairstyles to pull off, and it’s especially easy if you have long hair. First, apply Anti Humidity Smoothing Milk to get smooth hair and keep it that way. Part your hair on the side, keeping a two-inch section loose on the larger side. Gather the rest of your hair in a high ponytail and secure it with a hair tie. Then, twist the front section of hair and pin it to the side. Finally, finish it off by tying a ribbon or fabric at the base of the ponytail.
Ice Queen Hairstyles
Give off Marie Antoinette vibes with exaggerated bouffant hair. The beehive has an old-school, elegant vibe that works as a Halloween hairstyle for a number of costumes. (Plus, it doubles as a 1950s hairstyle.) Begin by teasing your dry hair at the back of your head using a wide-toothed comb. (Try the backcombing hair technique, in which you comb hair towards the roots to create volume.) Do so in sections until you have your desired hair volume. Then, part the front section of your hair on the side and spray it with Frizz Guard Spray, which will prevent flyaways and frizzy hair. Gather your hair in the back, covering the teased hair section, and twist it into a low bun, pushing it up to keep the volume at the crown.
Calling all woodland creatures. For a fairy hairstyle this Halloween, it doesn’t have to get too complicated. Just choose your favorite braided hairstyle and intersperse small flowers throughout as you braid it. It adds some pretty, delicate detail that keeps it from looking like your usual festival hairstyle.
Hippie Hairstyles: Flower Child
No time? No problem. A simple flower crown and romantic waves mean you won’t be without an Insta-worthy Halloween hairstyle. The trick to making this look special is the soft wavy hair, which you can get by dousing your hair with Wonder Waves Wave-Enhancing Spray from ear-level and down to your ends. Use your hair to scrunch and let it air-dry. It’ll give you soft, defined waves for a seriously dreamy effect.
Really, the spider is doing all the work here. Still, keeping your bun off-center looks unexpected and a little weird—which is exactly what you want in a Halloween hairstyle. First, part your hair in the center, and then gather your hair in a high bun. Pin your spider on the side of the bun, swipe on your darkest lipstick, and get ready to impress.
If you have naturally curly hair, this Halloween hairstyle is an easy one. (Plus, it works well with short haircuts, like a pixie.) All you need is an eye patch as well as Curl Shape Defining Spray Gel, which will give your hairstyle the hold it needs to last all night. Work it through damp hair. First, put on your eye patch. Then, create a very deep side part and sweep your hair over to one side wrap, using your hands to scrunch in some curls. Use your fingers to fluff and tousle your curls and then spray generously with Sleek & Shine Anti-Humidity Aerosol Hairspray.
A ballerina hairstyle is a classic for a reason. Plus, if you can dig out an old tutu, it makes for one of the easiest Halloween costumes out there. First, prep your hair with Smooth Blow Dry, which will keep your hair sleek and protect against heat damage. Blow dry your hair and then gather it in a high ponytail. Then, begin twisting it around the base of the ponytail and pin the end in place.
Masks add mystery, but wearing one all night can put a dent in your hair (and on your style) by crushing any hair volume you may have. Plan ahead by creating loose waves that start at the ear. This Halloween hairstyle works for anything that involves a headband, like a cat ears hairstyle. First, use a large barreled curling iron to create loose waves, using your fingers to stretch out and tousle them. Then, spray with Texture Tease Dry Touch Finishing Hair Spray, which will keep the hair texture and shape locked in all night long.
No witch is complete without a broomstick and that signature pointed hat. The trick is to wear this OG Halloween hairstyle without your hair falling flat throughout the night—which is why big, voluminous hair waves are essential. No matter what your hair texture is, you can make magic happen with your witch hair so long as you have the right products. On damp hair, work Style Sky-Hi Volume Mousse, which gives hair all-over volume that lasts. Witch hair has never been so good.
Getting bored with the same old messy bun? Or maybe you just need a quick-yet-polished look for the days you don't have time to wash your hair. No sweat: here are four easy, elegant buns for tresses of all lengths.
1. The Layered BunDon't settle for boring with this intricate and easy-to-achieve look. Separate your hair into three lateral sections. Leave the front sections loose and gather the section at the back of your head. Twist it into a loose, low bun. Now, take pieces from the front sections and twist them, pinning them around the bun to create a pretty, layered effect. Hair of just about any length can make this one work, as long as it's long enough to put in a bun.
2. Half-Up TopknotIs your hair so short that you can't get it to stay all together in a ponytail or bun? This one's for you! Instead of struggling to pin everything in place, why not embrace those wayward strands? Just gather the top section of your hair – everything above your ears – and twist it into a bun, leaving the bottom section loose on your neck. This look is best left messy and casual, so don't obsess over it!
3. Loose and LowThis one is perfect for those of you with long, straight hair. The end look is a beautiful, bell-like bun that hangs to one side. This looks best neat, so brush your hair until it's nice and smooth, then secure it in a low, off-center ponytail. With your fingers, open a hole just above the elastic, and flip your hair through the opening and pull through. Do this again, being sure not to pull your hair all the way through so that a loose bun is created at the nape of your neck. Then, tuck the loose ends up into the opening and pin them out of sight. Spread the bun and loosen it to finish this elegant look.
4. Braided BunCreate a beautiful effect with a sweeping braid that finishes in an intricate side-bun. If your hair is long enough to braid, this should work for you. Start at your right temple and French braid your hair in a diagonal line across the back of your head. Finish at the nape of your neck on the left side and finish off the braid, tying the end with an elastic. Now, roll the braid up and under itself to create a bun, which you'll pin near your ear. Keep things loose and use bobby pins to secure. This is a gorgeous look that can be worn casually or to a special event.

Casual Hair With a FlairEffortless styles that look perfect for the office or an evening out are every girl's dream. You want sophistication by day and playfulness by night, but your classy look doesn't have to take a huge bite out of your day or your budget. Whether you're headed to a business meeting, evening cocktails or a day at the beach — or you just need a second-day hair that works — you'll discover these four styles will have you ready for anything.
Quick and Easy ChignonThe word chignon might make you picture the pomp of Queen Victoria or Princess Diana, but a simple chignon is not just a hairstyle fit for a queen. Start this gentle up-do by twisting one side of your hair toward your scalp and around the hairline at the base. Secure this twist with a bobby pin in the center at the back of your head, and repeat on the other side, securing both twists at the base with a hair band and removing the bobby pin. Separate the center of the ponytail just above the hair band, and tuck the ponytail around and pull it through. Take the remaining part of the ponytail, roll up toward the ponytail base, and use two bobby pins to pin the rolled hair just above the hair band. You've created classy look for day or evening in less than two minutes.
Second-Day Blow OutWashing your hair every day takes time and depletes the hair of important conditioning oils. Create a great second-day look by refreshing your blowout: First, add a combination volumizer and dry shampoo like Garnier Fructis Volume Extend Instant Bodified Dry Shampoo to your roots, and then work in sections to massage and distribute the product evenly. Blow dry out your hair, and style normally. Voilà!
Sleek Pony TailDo you want a simple fashion statement that never goes out of style? You can't go wrong with a sleek pony tail: it's the perfect answer to any style question, whether the moment is dressy or casual. Create extra drama by creating a deep side or center part, add some shine, and hold the look with a touch of Garnier Pure Clean Styling Gel. Wrapping a piece of the ponytail around the base creates instant polish. Just secure with a bobby pin under the base!
Beautiful Beach BraidBraids are one of the most versatile hairstyles out there. They can be dressed up or down, worn tight or loose, and used to create interest when woven small throughout long tresses. One long braid is the perfect answer for the beach, and when taken out at the end of your day in the sun, a braid creates lovely soft waves for an evening by the bonfire.
Celebrities are constantly featuring flawless, chic new hairstyles. But wait, you don't need a team of highly trained stylists to pull off the looks you see in magazines or movies. Your own two hands and a few carefully chosen products will do! With these easy tips, you too can recreate some of the most fashionable celebrity hairstyles around.
Royal Lustrous LocksWho doesn't envy long, spiraling hair? Thankfully Princess-worthy locks are perfectly attainable for just about anyone. Work some Curl Construct Mousse into damp hair and flip your hair upside down to blow-dry. This will add volume to your hair, giving it the appearance of more luxuriant mass. Use hot rollers to divide your hair into sections and wait for them to completely cool before removing. Next, brush out the curls with a boar bristle brush. A spritz of hairspray will keep things in place.
Starlet WavesWe love red carpet-inspired loose waves but you don't actually have to be a star to achieve casual, long-hair-don't-care perfection. Start with damp hair and rough dry, using your fingers to scrunch and add volume, focusing especially on your roots. When your hair is mostly dry, pick up the flat iron and take a section of hair. Clamp it in the flat iron, turn it slightly away from your face, and slide it down to the end to create waves that naturally drift to the sides. The top layer should be styled away from your face. With the lower layers, mix up the direction of the curl for a more natural look. Remember, it's not supposed to look too polished, so when you've finished curling, spread your hair away from your head and tousle it, using a texture spray like De-Constructed Texture Tease to complete the look.
Leading Lady LobThis one's great for ladies with shorter hair. Lobs, or long bobs, are trending, and no one does it better than celebrities with short, wavy locks. For those of you with naturally curly or wavy hair, just let your hair air dry and do a little tousling, and maybe even style some strands away from your face with a curling iron. Got straight hair? No problem. With a little Texture Tease and a large barreled curling iron, you can easily work in the loose waves that make this lob look so great.
